    I just picked up a 2004 325ci with a blown head gasket, other than that, it's a beautiful car and I plan to keep it. I also have a 2001 330i which is not much more than a parts car but it has a strong motor, good compression, low miles, an ideal motor for a swap. Oh, and both are automatics. I'm...
